Learn the basics:
You must know the basics of the game before you get down to playing it.
Manage your bankroll:
Ensure that you spread out your wagers carefully. Low bets to start with may be a good idea if you are a beginner; that way you can feel your way through the game and if you lose the first few hands you still have money at hand to carry on.
Learn to quit:
Carry on further and you stand the chance to lose more than you probably should have. Quitting also works if you are ahead – you at least get to keep your winnings and not lose it all later on.
